The internet is pretty much obsessed with dogs - and with good reason. Canine cuties seem to be amongst the purest aspects of modern life. But that makes it all the more tragic when one is treated as anything less than the angel they are.

Sadly, so many people don't want to adopt older dogs - leaving many of them in shelters for their last years. But one charity is set to change that...

Keep scrolling for one of the most wholesome reads of your life.

Is there anything better than a dog?

These adorable creatures are basically the best things on earth. If you’re ever feeling down in the dumps, a dog is guaranteed to make you feel better.

They are truly man's best pals.

Whether they’re causing mischief, giving us those puppy eyes when they want a treat, or taking up the entire sofa, many of us couldn’t live without our furry friends.

Once you become a dog-parent, there's no going back...

It’s hard to imagine a life without having a pooch to come home to.

In an age where the internet is so divided, there's one thing we can all agree on...

How utterly amazing (and adorable) our 4-legged friends are.

Sadly, so many pooches are lost, abandoned or dumped - being left to fend for themselves.

Though there is some light at end of the tunnel for many of these doggos - who end up getting rescued and eventually adopted into new families.

Many animal shelters are simply overflowing...

And, according to statistics from the Humane Society, 6 to 8 million cats and dogs enter shelters here in the U.S. each year.

But these animal shelters aren't always the safest places for these animals.

Millions of these animals are euthanized every year due to the lack of space and people interested in adopting.

It's a devastating reality of animal homelessness.

And statistics show that, out of the 3 million cats and dogs euthanized in shelters every year, around 2.4 million are actually healthy, and would have been fit for adoption with a new owner.

But there's a certain set of dogs that always get left behind in these shelters.

...older dogs.

The majority of people prefer to adopt a younger dog...

One of the main reasons being that they'll be in our lives for longer.

But, as a result of this attitude...

Older pooches are often overlooked.

There are so many reasons why older canines find themselves in dog shelters...

But more often than not, it’s simply a case of their owner being unable to fit them into their lives anymore.

Thankfully, there are people out there who are passionate about rehoming older dogs.

And UK based charity,  Oldies Club, is one of those.

The organization specifically aims to find dogs aged 7 upwards their forever homes.

Oldies Club was founded in 2005 and became a registered charity in 2007. Now, they work in partnership with a whole host of dog shelters to rehome these elderly cuties.

Since Oldies Club launched...

A staggering 951 dogs have been rehomed through the lovely folks at the charity. But sadly, there are still so many dogs on their site waiting for their forever home.

Oldies Club places the doggos into foster homes...

Here, they are assessed and given the necessary veterinary treatment.

Then, they are advertised on the charity's site for rehoming.

On its website, the charity states: "People get ill, families split up, dogs stray and get lost." "What if it was your dog with the arthritic joints and the fading eyesight waiting in a cold kennel day-in, day-out for months on end? Wouldn’t you want someone to take care of him and restore all the home comforts that you allow for him now?"

It's a heartbreaking reality.

"The bustle of day-to-day life in kennels is not always compatible with an old character who just wants to curl up by the fireside, content in the knowledge he is loved and safe." "The tragic reality is that the old dog will spend his last days in kennels, wondering why he is there and not in the arms of a human who loves him."

Over on their site, the doggos are classified into different categories.

Like "Small and Cute," "Large and Lovely," "Active Oldies,"‘ "Calmer & Quieter," "Good with cats," and "Good with kids."

So, no matter which furry friend you're looking for...

There's bound to be one that's the perfect match.

The work that people like the team at Oldies Club do is so important.

Let's hope that all the remaining canine cuties find loving homes soon. Want more dog-related content? Keep scrolling to see the moment one clever pooch reports himself missing at a Texas police station.
